WSB Announces Partnership With Forté

The Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is now a Forté Sponsor School, reigniting a partnership that the School and Forté had in previous years.

Forté’s mission is to change the balance of the workplace. The nonprofit wants more women in leadership roles, a clearer pipeline for women to advance to leadership, and for women to have access to practical tools so they can learn, grow, and achieve in business.

Forté operates as an alliance of professionals, companies, donors, universities, and business schools.

Wisconsin Full-Time MBA students can now attend exclusive Forté events, gain access to the organization’s job board, and most importantly, tap into Forté’s extensive network of women business leaders.

“Having a more expansive network across the country—that’s a big opportunity for Wisconsin to be a part of,” says Jenna Herr (MBA ’19), a second-year full-time MBA student who helped with WSB’s Forté application as a part of her role as co-president of the School’s Graduate Women in Business organization.
